I've personally listened to it many many times, trying long and short to find something good about it, or simply trying to convince myself that is indeed a good record; that maybe it was all my fault that I couldn't fully appreciate this album, 'cause I was stuck on their past works, their past glory days. It still dindn't do much. It's not my standards which were too high, it's faulty the album itself. It's jut uninspired, dull, monotonous.
It's like a bad mix of heavy, melodic, thrash mixed with some harsh and cleaner vocals. And while the previous ingredients might have worked just fine, unfortunately the final result in this case is quite disappointing; making it, perhaps, the worst album in the whole Bodom career yet.
Don't get me wrong though, I'm not saying that this album is total garbage, but it's likely the most mediocre record the Finns have released yet and your least favorite if you're into Bodom's music.Read more ›
As for the album, if you like Children of Bodom then you will love this album. It's one of their best and easily one of the best in the metal genre.
The only regret I have is that I didn't buy this sooner!
It was seen at the time of its release as something of a return to form for the band as it brought back touches of the speed and neoclassical elements that had been toned down on the Are You Dead Yet? and Blooddrunk records. It's a remarkably slick, professional sounding, expertly produced affair, blending the sounds of records like Are You Dead Yet? and the savagery of earlier stuff like Hatebreeder.
The sound is a mixture of the modern Bodom style of Groove Metal bounce, Slight industrial tinged mechanical sounding riffs, and the occasional slow sections with the early Bodom recipe of Thrash riffs, Death riffs, mostly Melodic lead guitar, frequent guitar solos, a lot of double-kicks, interesting drum fills, and a sort of Power Metal style larger-than-life bombast. That's all topped off with Alexi's instantly recognizable voice.
Some fans aren't so keen on this record, or the two which preceded it, and only enjoy the early stuff, so maybe its not the best place to start. Pick up the classics first, and if you still want some more Bodom this is a good place to go next. I wouldn't necessarily pick this particular record to win over a non-fan with, but I wouldn't neglect it when choosing a best-of playlist. For what its worth, I personally enjoy this album a hell of a lot and listen to it pretty often.
Highlights include the opener `Not My Funeral,' the closer `Northpole Throwdown' and the lyrically offensive but incredibly catchy `Pussfoot Miss Suicide.Read more ›
